February 2011 Review

February has been an interesting month. The Buy-In structure at Stars changed for the better and now there are more recreational players in the mix at the 100bb tables.

I moved away from the 50bb / CAP tables and some experimenting with the short stacking. I now no longer play 24 tables and have set my max limit to 14.

I am back in profitville for the month although I have still lost at the tables. 2 drunken sessions at NL100 didn't help as I wildly shipped around $400 to the lucky recipients.

I had a little run bad in the final week but the main losses were due to the first 3 days of the month where I found myself -$700 down while playing the wild flippin gun slinger 50bb tables. I then went on to erase all the deficit by 14tabling 100bb tables only to lose it all again, lol.

I officially now announce that my SNE chase is over. My new target for 2011 will be 600k VPPs. My planning prior to commencing the year was poor. I was under-rolled and also over estimated the realistic VPP attainment rate at NL100. I was forced to step up to NL200 to get the daily VPP requirement. Being under rolled meant that I had to play the 500bb tables as opposed to the 100bb tables that I am used. The dynamic at the 50bb tables is far more gambling orientated and I sadly shipped around $5k losses in Jan. Stick to the game you know or build slowly to a new game!!

I haven't played any live poker for ages now, home games or casinos. I will try and get some of this action in for March. I sadly lost my streak bonus in the Turbo Takedown this month as I crashed out around 12,000th. I did well though in a Daily Ninety Grand Tourney finishing 202nd out of 7100 runners.

I did well at NL50 in Feb so I will base my fight at that level in March. I have decided to go for a tough challenge and attempt to make the TOP 50 Winners on Stars as stated on PTR for NL50 in march. To put it into context, I have never made that list before but I will go for it. If I eliminate spew in my game I have a good chance. I need to win 40 BIs to make the list.


The final numbers for February are as follows:

89,000 Hands Played

-$928 (Cash Game Losses)
+$303 (Tourney Winnings)
+$200 (Stellar Rewards)
+$1,500 (FPP Cash Bonus)
+$1,075 (Total Month)

The Ytd numbers as at the end of February are as follows:

253,000 Hands Played
75,067 VPPs

-$1,214 - Jan
+$1,075 - Feb
-$139 (Total YTD)
